Hey again folks.
For those of you looking for the "Official" word, thought I would pass this along.
On March 16th, I saw this post [I have Kevin N.'s (69injun) permission to repost this, in case anyone wondered. Thanks Kevin.]:
"Last week I heard that Camp Jeep 15 for 2009 was cancelled. I called Camp Jeep and they didn't have any info but knew the rumor was out there. So I emailed Jeep and asked. Given the economy and position the automakers are in I could understand but wanted to know.
Here is their response and at the bottom is my original email:

Camp Jeep Questions
I am curiouse if camp jeep is happening this year? 1. United Four Wheel Drive Assoc. is saying on their web site it is cancelled. 2. With the economy I guess I wouldn't be suprised. But I figure since it didn't happen last year and was planned for this year it would have been in the budget for the year.
I know my family wants to go to Camp Jeep and not for the big name concerts or the snow boarders and skateboarders. We want to go be with Jeeps, Jeep people, and the Jeep company family. That is what Camp Jeep is about to us. We want to hang out with like minded people and ride trails and camp and be completely surrounded by people who love Jeeps. But if the economy and the pressure of a government loan to sustain the company solvent means there can be no Camp Jeep this year then please let us know. Because people have to plan and make reservations and save money. If you can't have a Camp Jeep this year, we need to make other vacation plans, and it would be nice to do that now instead of waiting until late May like last year. You really are rubbing alot of people the wrong way by leaving them hanging for so long on the status of the event for no reason. If it isn't going to happen this year tell us and let us get on with our planning for the year.
